As the numbers of individuals who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder grow, education has focused on how to help them learn in classroom settings with peers. But what happens to them when they graduate from high school? How do they translate the skills they learned in school to everyday adult life? To answer this question it is important to examine how children with Autism Spectrum Disorder learn throughout their lives, from early childhood, adolescents, and into adulthood. With this information there are numerous strategies that can be utilized in early adolescences to create an effective transition program that enables individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder to learn successful adult lives after they graduate from high school.
